Gerard Grisey - Quatre chants pour franchir le seuil

Grisey (1946-1998) was a French avant-garde composer who specialized in spectral techniques. His works may not be easy on the ear, but they are very rewarding, and none more than Quatre chants pour franchir le seuil for soprano and ensemble, from 1998.
